Subject: RE: The future of Histotechs
I received a BS in biology and found my career path in Histology. In addition, my college offered a semester long histology course-which I took not knowing what I was getting my self into-ha:) I currently work in a contract lab that concentrates on animal tissues.To add some demographics from my place of employment the majority of my coworkers are 30 and younger -4 have their BS in biology with a HTL, 8 more employees with a BS in biology and 5 with A.S. in histology with their HT. From other comments I assume this is unusual, but maybe this will give some hope that there are some youngsters learning the trade.I didn't know about Histology until my college course. Perhaps, getting colleges and universities to offer courses would be an avenue to open up more career paths.
